Spatial analysis tools for extreme sea level risk analysis
Track: Climate Change
Authors: Peter Urich
Slow onset sea level rise forms a set of risk factors for coastal communities. However extreme sea level events of various intensities and return periods pose a particular risk to life and built and natural assets that require not only consideration but also a management response. CMIP5 climate data offers improved data for modeling extreme sea level events and through the application of Esri spatial analysis tools the visualization of the data enhances stakeholder understanding and action.
